Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

3M continues to emphasize innovation and keeps competitors away with generous levels of R&D spending, which typically totals nearly 6% of net sales.

Bears

While 3M has earned returns that have doubled its cost of capital for over 25 years, returns have declined and innovation has stagnated.
